The Lord Be With You Today!
Surely the nations are like a drop in a bucket;
they are regarded as dust on the scales;
He weighs the islands as though they were fine dust.
(Just as a single drop of water doesn’t add to the weight of a bucket of water,
nor a film of dust add to the weight of a measure of soil,
all the mighty nations and islands of the earth are insignificant
in comparison to the Sovereign God Who created them.
In the same way, all the issues we face today,
all the challenges and hardships that come across our path today,
are no more than a drop in the bucket or a fine dusting in the scope of our lives.
While they may seem insurmountable to us,
the Lord weighs them differently,
and He invites us today to look at these issues
as He sees them, through His perspective.
The real challenge for us today is not the hardship before us,
though it may be deeply difficult.
The real challenge for us is to focus on Christ Jesus
as our Savior and Lord in and through the situation,
to remember that He is greater than all our needs,
to remember that He is God and the situation is a mere passing circumstance,
no more than moments in time that He uses
to draw us to Him and to reveal Himself to us.
Today, we are safe in His care.
We are secure in His mighty hand.)
May the Lord richly bless you this day!
In Christ’s love,
